It’s Thursday, February 8, 2018 and this is The Daily Caller Newsroom.


The 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea start Thursday and White House correspondent Saagar Enjeti is breaking down how the United States will deal with the North Korean delegation.

“There’s some diplomatic tensions brewing here though, because, you know, the Vice President said we’re going to be sending some very strong messages toward North Korea,” Enjeti explained. “The North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s little sister will be representing the regime at the opening of the Olympics, where North and South Korea are going to be marching together.”

This media reporter told Olympics fans to keep an eye out for any “social justice” slipping into the events this year. So far, African American speed skater Shani Davis thinks he was unfairly passed up for the United States’ flag-bearer role, and male figure skater Adam Rippon, who is the first “out” gay winter athlete, said he would avoid meeting with Vice President Mike Pence because of his position on gay marriage.
